The greatest update to Mac Pro might be revealed in 2019. It has been known since the April of 2017 that Apple is planning to completely redesign the Mac Pro. There are speculations that it will be released next year after being showcased at the fall event this year.
“We want to be transparent and communicate openly with our pro community so we want them to know that the Mac Pro is a 2019 product. It’s not something for this year,” Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac hardware product marketing, told TechCrunch. Tech Crunch says that the release of Mac Pro will affect other products in the Pro line.
“We know that there’s a lot of customers today that are making purchase decisions on the iMac Pro and whether or not they should wait for the Mac Pro,” Boger added. There are a lot of details about the device that aren’t known yet. The design of the Mac Pro is like a trashcan which will probably conceived to make the device modular to let user access the memory and graphics component easily.
“As we said a year ago working on modular was inherently a modular system and in looking at our customers and their workflows obviously that’s a real need for our customers and that’s the direction we’re going,” Boger added further.
Apple wants the Final Cut Pro to work perfectly on the Mac Pro and therefore, the Work Pro team is keeping those two projects closely aligned. The workflow team is going to work closely with the pro consumers that use their devices to work on the graphic design, film editing, animation, and other industries.
The new Mac Pro might also run on ARM processors as Apple has decided to shift away from the Intel processors. It won’t be using the Apple based chip as those won’t come out before the 2020s. If Apple is trying to use the in-house chips then the Mac Pro might be delayed even more.
